HOW I RECHARGE
Although I might be cursed with early laugh lines, laughing is as important
to me as eating and sleeping. When I laugh hard enough, I start snorting—it’s very embarrassing. My consolation is that both my son and my mother snort, too.
I NEVER THOUGHT I’D TRY IT, BUT AM SO GLAD I DID
Five years ago, my ex-husband got me to join an online dating service. He met his present wife there and wanted me to give it a chance. I met a wonderful man, Michael, and he proposed to me on my birthday. We have so much in common, including sons who are the same age and who are both named Christopher!
My son and I get our portrait taken each year and pick fun outdoor places. One year, my son took charge—he chose the location and the poses and insisted on wearing a tie. I will always treasure this captured moment.
THE DHC DIFFERENCE
I received a catalog with free samples, but feared using the products because they had the word “oil” on them. (During my 20s, I was cursed with horrible facial acne.) A few years ago, I finally got up the nerve to use DHC products and have been ecstatic with my results ever since. Every week, I receive compliments from patients about how great my skin looks. I even get a few comments about how I look too young to be a physician—even though I graduated from medical school 13 years ago.
FAVORITE DHC PRODUCTS
For my basic skincare routine, I use Deep Cleansing Oil, Pure Soap, and Balancing Lotion. I look forward to removing my makeup and washing my face after work. There’s nothing like the feeling of clean, soft skin. To moisturize, I use Alpha-Arbutin White Milk during the day and Alpha-Arbutin White Cream at night. Other products I love include After Bath Hair Treatment Oil and Face Color Perfect Pro Highlighter in Pale White. I turned 40 this year, but have come to embrace it because DHC helps me look younger.
